Kansas City Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
Some of the worst types of accidents are those that involve pedestrians. Pedestrian accidents may occur for several reasons. Drivers who are distracted with their cellphones or intoxicated can put pedestrians at risk of being struck. Roadway changes and poor weather conditions are also contributing factors that can lead to a pedestrian accident.
Pedestrians have virtually no protection from oncoming vehicles. As a result, they tend to sustain greater injuries from accidents. These injuries can have life-altering consequences. If you're suffering from a pedestrian accident injury, you may be entitled to receive compensation.
Who Is At Fault in a Pedestrian Accident?
Pedestrians have the right of way to cross the street in crosswalks, and vehicles on the roadways must exercise a standard of care even when pedestrians cross the street outside of the crosswalk. In many cases, the attorneys for the defense may try to argue that the pedestrian jaywalked, impeded the flow of traffic, violated posted traffic signs, or darted into the street.
Our personal injury attorneys know that since vehicles have the greater capacity for injury, they must be significantly more careful. If you or a loved one have been injured as a pedestrian, you must retain an attorney that can analyze the case on its individual merits and recover damages for your injuries.
